Murphys Suites

Name: Beverly Babcock
Phone: 775-742-1777

We’ve rescheduled the SNR wine tour to Murphys in Calaveras County, California, for October 23-25. Originally scheduled for August, the California wild fires and falling ash necessitated a postponement to October, when hopefully the fires will be out or greatly reduced.

We had 23 members registered (and paid) for the August tour and at this point are assuming they will be able to make the tour in October. If any registered members are unable to make this event in October please notify us ASAP so that we can open up your slots for other members that wish to register. At this time we still have 2 slots open, to stay within Nevada’s limit of 25 individuals to an event.

Registered members who are available to make this October event need to re-book at Murphys Suites now. Rooms are checkin Friday, the 23st of October and checkout Sunday, the 25th of October.  Please call #209-728-2121 to reserve your room. It is under Sierra Nevada Porsche Club – $179.00 per night (total for two nights with taxes is $400.96, double-occupancy).  Members who had not previously registered who wish to attend this event need to register and book their room at Murphys Suites.  If registration is full, members can add their names to the wait list and register if there is a cancellation. Registered members who cannot make the October tour will be refunded the $133 per person they paid previously for the winery tasting events and the dinner at the Old Murphys Hotel.

Friday: The Reno/Sparks and points North folks will meet at the Wedge Parkway McDonald’s at 9:30 am and leave at 10 am to meet up with the Minden/Gardnerville and points South contingent in Genoa, about 10:45 am.  We’ll leave Genoa at 11 am and stop at the Twisted Oak Winery in Vallecito, CA for food and wine, before proceeding on to our hotel, Murphys Suites. Dinner is on your own Friday night.

Saturday: We meet at 9 am for breakfast at Hillbillies. At 11 am we will travel by lemo (minimal cost, pay on site) to Chatom Vineyards. Upon returning to our hotel we’ll leave at 1 pm and walk to Ironstone Vineyards for lunch.  After lunch you are free to tour the downtown area with its tasting rooms or just relax at the hotel.  Saturday evening we will meet at the Old Murphys Hotel for cocktails at 6 pm and an outdoor plated dinner at 7 pm.  There you will have a choice of House or Ceasar salad and a choice of entree (Surf &Turf, Stuffed Chicken, Roasted Duck, Pork Roulade, or Vegetarian Raviolis). All dinners include rolls & butter and a choice of seasonal house desserts. Salad and entree selections must be made in advance. After you register, you need to contact Beverly Babcock (at 775-742-1777 or with your salad and entree selections, by close of registration – October 16.

Sunday: After saying our farewells in the morning, we’ll depart separately for our homes.
